New resources for patients and caregivers
The Ottawa Hospital Uro-Oncology Research Group is proud to have designed and developed multiple patient decision aids. Urologist, Dr. Luke Lavallée, created the decision aids for kidney cancer patients. The objective is to help patients discuss treatment options with their doctor.
This decision aid was created to educate patients with kidney tumours and encourage them to think about different parts of treatment that are important to them. All patients are unique. There are no wrong decisions. This decision aid will hopefully help you discuss treatment choices with your urologist when determining how to best manage your kidney tumour.View online or download
